HarperTeen Impulse Launch

HarperCollins has announced a new digital imprint, HarperTeen Impulse (not to be confused with Avon Impulse, another all-digital HarperCollins imprint launched last year).

HarperTeen Impulse will publish YA short fiction, beginning on December 4, 2012 with SF novella Stupid Perfect World by Scott Westerfeld and novella Breathless by Sophie Jordan. The imprint will publish as many as four e-books each month, with prices ranging from $0.99 to $2.99. Susan Katz, president of HarperChildren’s, says, “We’re seeing short-form content becoming more popular in the digital marketplace, and HarperTeen Impulse allows us to experiment with new concepts and deliver content quickly.”
